When I look back at old stories I cringe at how childish they are, considering I was probably in my early 30s when I discovered fanfics and started writing lol.  I like to think I've matured a bit now :)

I'm sure our old stories all have that "beginner" quality to them, regardless of how old we were when we started writing.  And I still write childish stuff sometimes, like my pandaskunk stories - but that can be fun!

Came across this Reddit thread that claimed, "Every writer's first draft of their first every written piece started with something Running late, or speeding, or just going somewhere quick. What's your Story?"

I was like, "Not mine!" and then immediately went to look.  In fact, my first (and only) draft of my first fanfic DOES start with Kevin and Howie telling Brian to hurry up so they can get to rehearsal on time.  That's after the even more cliched beginning of main character Brian waking up.  Also, he's in his water bed, which made me laugh because I just watched that Frank Skinner interview from 2005 when they were making fun of his water bed a couple weeks ago LOL. http://www.dreamers-sanctuary.com/vault/heartache1.html

In other words, I am (or was) a walking cliche.

Anyone else start their first story this way?  I didn't even realize this was a thing.

LOL yes I think my first ever story had the main character rushing as she was going to be late  for work.  I didn't realise it was a thing either.

I did use that in one of the stories of the Nick and Amanda series, that he had a car accident t because he was speeding but in Incomplete he was in a coma because of a accident on stage during one of the shows

LOL Poor Nick.  Speaking of stage accidents, funny moment from the Vegas show I went to with Rose and Dee a couple weeks ago:  There's a pole they put onstage to clip the Boys' safety harnesses to before the front of the stage rises for Breathe, DWLYN, and INBYH.  I never noticed it in 2019, but it's nice to know they are attached to something so they couldn't fall off the stage when it's that high.  The only reason I noticed it this time is that Nick almost ran into it or tripped over it or something, and one of the other guys (I think AJ) was like, "Jeez, don't impale yourself on that pole."  I laughed and looked at Rose because 1) that sounds like something one of us would write in "1000 Ways to Kill Nick Carter," and 2) I have actually read a story that starts with Nick falling off the stage and getting impaled on a pole.  If only he knew... LMAO
